A world so quickly and thoroughly changed. I find myself frequently returning to a century-old line from The Surrealist Manifesto: “Let yourself be carried along. Events will not tolerate your interference.”

In the wake of the world’s first mechanized war, the Dada movement ferociously rejected institutional logic before fading into the dreamlife of Surrealism. Some of us turn outwards, others inwards. Which direction will dominate after this crisis?

Each night in 2020 I wrote a short post for a series called Notes From the End of a World because I wanted to etch these times into my memory. Before the world changed completely.
